  1. Hi! Many thanks for your interest.

    Although we’re providing this event for Irish New Professionals – it is open to all – if you have a presentation or a poster and wish to submit it, you can. We’ll notify all those who are successful on the 15th of September.

    The proviso is that you have to be available to attend in Dublin on the 11th of October 2014 to either present or display your poster. You can contact us for more info via npdireland@gmail.com Many thanks!
